Do you really want a Jar Jar Binks USB flash drive? There are so many better characters you could choose from. Well, at least this storage device can’t possibly be as inept and useless as the CGI Gungan himself, right?
With the impending release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, it must be quite irritating for many hardcore Transformers fans to see their beloved series be twisted the way it has been for the past three movies.
These new Mimobot flash drives look pretty cool because when they are not in use, they look like stormtroopers. When you take off the helmet to plug it in to your computer, you’ll find either Luke Skywalker or Han Solo hiding beneath.
If I am to be honest, my least favorite film of the first three originals is The Empire Strikes Back. The bit where Luke gets crammed inside the dead tauntaun was kind of cool. I did like that flick better than say any of the new trilogy, especially the one with Jar Jar Binks.
The Master Chief MIMOBOT isn’t a towering 7-footer with a 700 lb. armor like his video game counterpart, but he can store data. Like, up to 8 GB. And he has a huge head.
As you can see, Blue and Red Spartans have also enlisted to protect your spreadsheets and documents.
Already insanely popular with hipster-doofuses and the artsy-fartsy set around the globe, Domo-kun (aka “Domo”) is a strange little character that’s been seen on Japanese television screens for about ten years. Whether you think he’s cute, weird or disturbing, there’s something for everyone when it comes to the little brown guy.
The next in the series of Lucasfilm-approved Star Wars USB memory sticks (known as “mimobots”) has been revealed and it’s everyone’s favorite droid, R2-D2.
Stormtrooper, Chewbacca and Darth Vader models were previously announced. These limited-edition mimobots come in 1GB ($79.95), 2GB ($119.95) and 4GB ($169.95) versions and will start shipping in early January 2007.
